Sustainability in Business

Business Lunches

It is with great pleasure we announce a Luncheon with Green Party co-leader James Shaw. He is joining us to talk about Sustainability in Business.

Green Party Co-leader James Shaw strongly believes that New Zealand can lead the world in transitioning to a high-value, clean-tech, post-carbon economy that works for everyone.

He knows it’s a hugely ambitious, probably decades-long task, but it’s the reason he’s committed to a life in politics and one of the many reasons joined the Green Party in 1990. James was appointed Green Party Co-leader on May 30, 2015, after being elected to Parliament as a list MP in 2014.

Prior to becoming an MP, James had a successful career in management consulting, primarily in London, where he lived from 1998 to 2010. While there, he worked with large, multinational companies across Europe and around the world, developing their sustainable business practices. It was while James was in the UK, studying for a Master’s degree in sustainable development and business leadership, that he realised that the private sector alone wasn’t able to affect change at the speed and scale necessary to meet the great challenges of our time.

With that realisation also came a call to action, and James moved back to Wellington, the city where he was born and raised, with the aim of being elected to Parliament.

James believes that, with vision and purpose, politicians can bring the large-scale, transformational change that is needed to build a truly inclusive economy, and a healthier planet. His diverse business experience and expertise, from working for multinational corporates through to local start-ups and community organisations, will enable him to lead the Green Party and New Zealanders towards a high-tech post-carbon economy and society.

It might be the biggest challenge of a generation, but James also sees it as the greatest opportunity: he wants New Zealand to lead the way and show the world how it’s done.

Engaging Millennials and Gen Z

Business Breakfasts

Engaging Millennials and Gen Z

Join AUT Millennium and Business North Harbour for breakfast and an interactive workshop
presented by Dale Carnegie, worth $250 per person. As a friend of ours, we would like to invite
two people from your business as our guests free of charge!

Tour of AUT Millennium: 9am

Millennials are now the largest segment of the workforce and Generation Z is on its way, which
means that in some organisations, four generations are working side-by-side. So how do we
engage these younger workers, and bridge the generational divide?

In this Breakfast and Learn Workshop, we'll look at the latest research on how younger workers
think and operate, and discuss ways to engage them in order to create a high-performing team.

Business card drop prizes on the day include:
 Conference room hire with one night's accommodation valued at $775
 A three month membership to AUT Millennium Gym valued at $400

Spaces are limited, so please RSVP by Tuesday 8 October to AUT Millennium Accommodation &

Network and Nibbles

Business After Five

Networking can be daunting. It’s tricky spending a couple hours away from your business or family to attend an event and the idea of standing in a room full of strangers can be a bit overwhelming. So why go through it all?
Networking is not only good for your business; it also benefits you as a person.
• Social connection and interaction – especially if you work from home, it’s good to get out and meet others. You don’t have to go it alone.
• Collaboration – meet new suppliers or partners to help move your business forward.
• Sales – uncover new opportunities and customers to grow your business reach.
• Advice – connect with other businesses who have tackled the challenges you’re working through or can put you in touch with someone who can help.
• Improve your skills – the opportunity to talk about your business, especially with new people, allows you to test and refine how you describe what you do. This can be especially helpful when you’re first starting out and exploring new ideas.

Join us for our first Network and Nibbles event at All Day Trader in Albany. Mix and mingle in a relaxed atmosphere with drinks and nibbles and connect with other members and local businesses.

The Serious Business of Staff Wellbeing

Business Lunches

It is with great pleasure that we announce a luncheon with Mike King.

Mike King has for years been known as the iconic Kiwi entertainer, but that role has changed dramatically since the conception of his hugely popular radio show "The Nutters Club".

The show evolved from Mike’s own experience of mental illness and addiction and has become a huge success. The aim of the show is to ‘forever change the way people feel, think, talk and behave in relation to mental health’.

Current work: These days Mike is better known for his work as a prominent mental health educator and motivational speaker with the work he does under his charity and with his conference speaking. Mike's aim is to reverse the population trends of depression and suicide by effecting a positive social change.

Mike works with all levels within an organisation to help with mental health and safety in the workplace. His message tells of how he overcame drug and alcohol addiction, and his continued battle against depression.

It is accessible and pertinent to all staff and often helps companies identify anyone who may be struggling and in need of further assistance.

Accolades: Mike was recognised in the Queen’s Birthday Honours 2019 becoming an Officer of the New Zealand Order of Merit acknowledging his campaign for tackling mental health and suicide prevention. He was also awarded 2019 New Zealander of the Year.

Delivering Safety for Life
Member Event Post
Today’s rapidly changing world puts growing pressure on workers. This impacts on workers who may have limited capacity to cope with pressure and uncertainty, and may inadvertently lead to unsafe outcomes.

To counter this The Safety BrainsTrust has developed a disruptive thinking technique called SOFt™ - that shifts mindsets from being reactive to responsive and introduces a safety buffer between think and do . Our FOTp™ is a simple to use tool that delivers key insights into the state of wellbeing of employees, how effective communication is, and what safety concerns and issues there are at the coal face. The ‘BrainsTrust’ has an educational programme that is delivered in a series of certificated half-day workshops for personal development in the areas of Resilience, Effective Communication, Cognitive & Applied Safety, and Change.

The costs of performing an activity unsafely are up to 36 times that of doing so safely: It therefore pays to invest in leading-edge safety initiatives that are grounded in science and make a real difference in the workplace.

Take some well spent time to meet our team of Resilience, Effective Communication and Applied Safety thought leaders to discover what is on offer, and how we can help you to improve Wellbeing and Health & Safety and reduce costs associated with unsafe outcomes.

Date: Thursday, 12 September 2019
Time: 10.30am − 12.00am
Venue: Business North Harbour offices, 12 Parkway Drive, Rosedale, Auckland.
Purpose of event: To introduce The Safety BrainsTrust to the BNH community.

WHAT YOU DO IN THE NEXT 4–12 MINUTES
BEFORE THE ST JOHN AMBULANCE ARRIVES
COULD SAVE THAT PERSON'S LIFE.
St John has designed a two-hour workshop to up-skill staff. In two hours, your staff will be shown how to deal with the five most common situations they are likely to encounter in their
workplace environment; it could be a cardiac arrest, a falling injury, or a person cut and badly bleeding. The aim of this workshop is to up-skill staff to compliment, or assist, your fully trained first aiders.
